Yes.  Unfortunately it (like your others) is lacking a Signed-Off-By.

Can you provide a Signed-off-By please, as your confirmation of the
statements in the Developer's Certificate of Origin (below) ?

I'm going to do something to make doing this easier for Debian users.
But it still won't work out of the box.  I think the bug is in
Debian's python system.  I can't seem to find the bug# offhand.

Re debian-stubdom.Makefile.diff, this is due to an unconscionable bug
in dpkg-buildpackage.  #560070.
